Hurricanes Activate Cam Ward

RALEIGH, NC—Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has activated goaltender Cam Ward from the long-term injured list. Ward has missed the Hurricanes’ last 13 games after being cut on his leg by a skate in Carolina’s game at Columbus on Nov. 7. He is eligible to play in the Hurricanes’ game at New Jersey on Wednesday, Dec. 9.

Prior to the injury, Ward, 25, posted a 2-9-3 record, a 2.97 goals-against average and a .899 save percentage, while starting 15 of Carolina’s 16 games this season. The Saskatoon, Sask., native is in his fifth NHL season, and has compiled a 122-86-21 record and a 2.82 goals-against average in 239 regular-season games with the Hurricanes. He has recorded 108 of the team’s 135 wins (80.0%) since he took over as the team’s starter at the beginning of the 2006-07 season. Ward (6’1”, 185 lbs.) is the franchise’s all-time leader in playoff wins (23) and he captured the Conn Smythe Trophy in 2006 as the playoffs’ Most Valuable Player, recording 15 of the team’s 16 wins en route to winning the Stanley Cup. The Hurricanes drafted Ward in the first round, 25th overall, in the 2002 NHL Entry Draft.
